We had also arranged a meet up with Helen and Paul, ex Clifton Cruisers, which was why we had moored close the the Willoughby Bridge. Of all the days of our summer to choose this was the wettest. However, intrepid boaters as they were, they braved the rain and walked down the towpath to Petroc where we shared the bottle of bubbly Geoff had bought for our anniversary a few days ago.
We then drove to the Dun Cow at Dunchurch and had a very good meal and a great catch up,
Today dawned dull and still somewhat windy for out last trip of the year but at least the rain had stopped.
